I recently acquired a Doctor Who themed phone case of the TARDIS in the Starry Night scene of Van Gogh’s, I got it to match my necklace and inspired by these two items I crafted an outfit last week. I walked into work and showed off my necklace and phone case to my co-worker who is also a huge Doctor Who fan. “You look like a Doctor Who companion!” She exclaimed. Oooh, to go on an adventure with the Doctor!
Pretending I’m figuring out clues is always fun.

A close up of my necklace.
My order actually also included a second hard plastic phone cover as well.
OK. I know I’ve done a lot of – OH MY GOD I FOUND THIS ON PINTEREST. But, honestly, the most I have time for anymore is flipping through pages of Pinterest. I’ll even admit I have a secret Wedding board. UGH! I’m one of those girls. But, I assure you it is necessary for sanity.
I left my home, my friends, and my routine for hope. For love. And while I’m believing good things will happen and have my sisters and a roof over my head, my routine is all shot to hell and back again. For someone with an anxiety disorder, that is extremely disruptive and I fight bouts of depression throughout the days. Pinterest can pull me back from dark thoughts because it brings me belief that I can eventually be in a better place to make the things I want to make, it gives me laughter when I find something silly, and it’s a small slice of my routine I am able to keep.
All that to say. I found some cool Doctor Who things on Pinterest. Like these TARDIS flip flops. GAH! I want! My own TARDIS is stuffed out in my sister’s garage, I had to cut it in half just to get it here, and all my pictures and reminders of how to smile again are locked up in a plastic prison. To make up for that, I think my sisters are going to need to through me a Doctor Who birthday party and make one of these TARDIS pinatas, because, well, because they owe me.
TARDEx for all your shipping needs you didn’t know you had yesterday. Seriously, this should exist! ;)
Hot Topic must have a license to sell, because they have a lot of Doctor Who stuff. Like this Sleeper Set for women. It actually does look comfortable.
My niece has an ice tray with star shapes, don’t I deserve this TARDIS and Dalek mold to make my own geeky ice?
I like how these people added touches of Doctor Who to their wedding. It’s a little subtle with the Rose and blue references (especially as the blue isn’t TARDIS blue), but it’s a cute idea. The huge entrance TARDIS is a nice touch.
Thanks to FM for letting me know about this awesome TARDIS dress. I like the skirt part of the dress, but I do think the corset could be a little more fitted on the woman.
Peter Capaldi has been cast as the 12th Doctor, as you probably all have heard. I’ve seen him in other Moffet productions, Doctor Who as Caecilius and on Torchwood as John Frobisher, and on World War Z. None of his roles really stand out in my head, even after reviewing them on IMDB, this is probably because he becomes his role rather than just being himself in the role. Hopefully, this portends good things. But Matt Smith will always be MY Doctor. So, I would probably be as ambivalent about any new actor in the role.
My friend Stephanie B. posted this awesome picture she took on a trip to the at Yogi Bear Jellystone Park. I <3 this so much. Thanks for sharing Stephanie!! Check out her tumblr here: http://www.retromondays.tumblr.com/.

io9’s top 10 science fiction TV spin offs that were great in their own right. Such as Xena. Booyah!
Aaron Eckhart is a sexy sexy beast. By that I mean a sexy Frankenstein monster.
How cool is this flexible seating? Pretty cool. However, I’m not sure how comfortable it would be. It looks like cardboard.
Now for some cool book stuff. Like this pretty pretty book land! Or a cool mobile library. A great photo of raining books. I hope no books were harmed in the production of this photo. ;) All of these cool book things were found on Ned Hayes Pinterest boards. You should go follow him.
I found this deliciously delightful post about love triangles on Picture Me Reading. You will laugh, seriously. Or at least chuckle. OK. Maybe you’ll just crack a smile. Still, it is funny.
I may need to take these kid geeky costumes a little more seriously now that I have a four year old in my daily life. This R2D2 Princess costume is adorbs.
Check out this 3doodler, a 3d printing pen that is totally awesome. I WANT ONE!!!
Read a post on the Geek Force Network for one woman’s top 12 picks for the 12th Doctor. I’m voting on number 3. Chiwetel Ejiofor for the win!
I like to go onto Etsy and search for Doctor Who or TARDIS and just see the awesome things people are making and producing. Like this Delete decal staring a Cyberman for your geeky keyboard. I also found a charming Fez and Bow-Tie charm necklace that is just adorable and this TARDIS vintage pendant that is really cool. But the most adorable find on Etsy, that is also kind of the creepiest, is this Are You My Mummy bib. Awww. ::Shudder::
I like searching Etsy because there are always new finds and interesting projects being made. But sometimes I don’t immediately find the best stuff searching on Etsy. Instead I head over to Pinterest where I find this amazing TARDIS flask. Yes, it leads back to Etsy. But it had gotten lost among the other not so great stuff. [via]
I follow Nerdist Channel on Youtube and Chris Hardwick really does some cool stuff. Like bowling with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan. Or sending off some of his peeps to the U.K. to meet up with Arthur Darvill to tour some of his favorite London taxidermy shops. I am TOTALLY jealous. The popcorn skulls was my favorite.
This TARDIS tutu is rather simplistic, but I do love the idea. I’m not sure it is worth $150 as it looks like a cami (with TARDIS printing on it) has been sown onto tulle, but it is pretty. Aaaand further research shows that the $150 is only for the skirt. Hmmm. Well, perhaps tulle is expensive? Hmmm, well it does look labor intensive? I guess. Anyway, interesting idea. [via]
I know I have posted other mash-ups with Sully and Mike and the TARDIS door, but I just love this concept art. I just rewatched Monsters Inc. because Chris had never seen it and I wanted to rewatch it before I saw Monsters U, but then I never saw Monsters U. Which is still a bummer. Perhaps I’ll try to see it this weekend. [via]
I really enjoy beloved characters meeting each other, like this Doctor Who and Garfield cross over. The only time I want to see a Dalek and wouldn’t take a bat to it is if it were here to exterminate Mondays. You can buy it as a t-shirt or hoodie on Redbubble.
So there is this concrete bench down by the lake near where I live that gets painted every year. A committee comes up with a theme, divides the wall into sections and participants are given a section to paint as they will. It’s a cool concept and a great time with food vendors and music every year. Unfortunately this year I was on vacation while the festival took place, but my mom went and she got a picture of a very geeky section of the wall.
Here are some links to some awesome Doctor Who Stuff I found on the internets:
A Doctor Who Quilt. Now that is cool and clearly deserves the prize it won.
A family portrait of Madame Vastra, Jenny Flint, and Strax. I hearts it. [via]
Even if there are some I wouldn’t personally wear, because they wouldn’t fit my body type, I love every single TARDIS dress I come across. I just love how wonderfully inventive these women are!
Doctor Who pinup with a red head. I can never resist the red heads.
An awesome Doctor Who cake that is blue, has Galifreyan symbols, and a blinking TARDIS on top!
Custom Doctor Who themed canvas shoes. [via]
